Cavalock and The Road To The World's Most Haunted City

One of the highlights of the trip was the 12-hour, 1,000 miles drive from London to Edinburgh. An upgraded Volvo, an excellent driver and an amazing GPS got us all in one piece to the world’s most haunted city.

Dare anyone heading to Edinburgh to read this site first. Hah!

Anyway, the drive up north was peppered with pit stops and here’s my favourite. Little Chef. Now some of these restaurants just got a menu revamp by award-winning chef Heston Blumenthal. What’s more, you can actually catch all that happening on SIA inflight channel, Big Chef Takes On Little Chef.

Now I said ‘some’ restaurants cos we stopped at two of them and both had different menus. One had the winter menu, the other didn't. We much prefer the one that didn't.

Mussels in white wine sauce, a new favourite. Anyone knows where I can find this in Singapore???

Quite possibly one of my fav meals during the entire trip, so good that I had to snap the menu of it. Hah! Braised Ox Cheeks! Again, where do I find something like this here???

And after 834,934 sheep and 129,453 cows later, we finally made it to our little hotel. Reached it bout 10.30pm but this here is a day shot.

Coming up ... more mussels, my new fav beer, London's most famous market and maybe even some totally non-food pix!
